Autumn typically evokes thoughts of oranges, golds, and browns. And while they are beautiful on their own I think adding pops of light green and dark green can be beautiful too. It changes up the look without being too crazy. A blend of browns, golds, and greens could easily be added to a wreath or centerpiece.

I selected a few swatches at Benjamin Moore today and took a moment to highlight  color combinations I had around my home. Starting with a few swatches is an easy way to create seasonal color palettes.

While I am highlighting my vintage pieces I want to make a small (big??) annoucement. After months of deliberation I have decided to close the Etsy shop. My passion for integrating vintage into everyday life will continue on the blog, but running the shop is time consuming. My clients are important to me and they deserve the utmost attention. And right now my focus is elsewhere. I don't yet have a close date, so for now I'll start with 30% off everything in the shop! Use code: autumn30. Thank you for all of your support!
